No matter how ready we are for the next step it’s still a giant leap when we get there.
The children were only in school for two days last week but the adjustment felt huge. Early mornings, packed bags, frayed tempers, separation – it is all so much to adapt to in one day.
Monty has joined Milla at school, for mornings only at first but he’s nonetheless a school child now.
Besty will soon be going to pre-school and I’ll be free to work without the interruptions of shows, cuddles, arguments, snacks and a dozen other needs. I welcome the time to work without disrupting their time but I am going to miss the chaos around me.
This Autumn we’re all taking a giant leap forward. Thank goodness we have hands to hold.
